No, not really... the only USB connection from/to the aquaero is to the motherboard.

The Hubby7 allows you connect multiple USB items to the hub, which is then connected to a single motherboard USB port.
All the aquacomputer devices will then show up in the aquasuite, where you can control/monitor them.

If you wish to control/monitor aquacomputer devices with the aquaero, you have to use the aquabus connection.

So the only benefit of connecting the devices to the Aquaero is using the Aquaero screen to control the parts, otherwise i just can use Aquasuite, correct?

What devices? The Aquaero is what controls the devices that I know/have * (even when Windows is not running), and Aquasuite is used to configure the Aquaero.

* The devices I know/have are not USB. I think some of them do have control logic of their own (unnecessary when one has an Aquaero). It should say so on their respective product page and/or manual. If true, I guess your assumption is correct (I only have an Aquaero LT without display, no experience there).

I mean devices like Aqualis XT, D5 Next RGB, Quadro, Poweradjust3,...etc that I have all, so can we connect the Aquabus and USB together in each device or we need to choose one connection per device?

you need to connect by usb 1st for the device to be recognised by the pc so having a hubby helps if you have a lot to connect. you can disconnect after and use just aquabus. however I kept my usb connected so future updates are easy to do so in answer to your question yes you can have either or have both :) I have Aquaero 6 xt, 1x hubby7, 1 x poweradjust 3, an mps 400 and 4x splitty 9, 1 of which is setup as aquabus hub. the Aquaero, hubby7, mps400 and the poweradjust are all connected by both usb and aquabus.
